Focusing on a wide range of cultures — from the tribal and corporate to the academic and microbial — the 23rd Annual CSU Biotechnology Symposium earlier this month showcased applied research in the CSU as it set the stage for students’ future success in scientific and technological careers.
To a lively gathering of about 500 CSU students and faculty and nearly 100 industry professionals, community college representatives and elected officials, the symposium presented panels of experts with global perspectives and the discoveries of individual researchers.
With 236 research posters, students from 22 CSU campuses described and discussed their findings related to genes, proteins, cancers, crops, nerves, viruses, and more. Students, faculty and industry leaders dialogued through career networking, educational sessions and roundtable discussions.
Organized by the CSU Program for Education and Research in Biotechnology (CSUPERB), the symposium is the major statewide event fostering the development of emerging biotechnology researchers and professionals in California.
